How were the birds you saw acting?  Were they strutting, showing off for the hens? Gobbling a lot?

Thank-u to everyone who has posted on lil freaks bbd, It means alot to us. CChunter, the birds were not active at all. Nothing sounded off on the roost, and this bird didnt make a sound till alittle after 7…When he commit he gave us one hellva show. Bigpond, I gotta admitt after the shot it sounded like 2 people had lost their minds on the hill, Lil freak was yelling,screaming, I was at the point of tears but yelling u did it, u did it!!!!Other than my kids being born, it one of the BEST memories of my life;)

That’s so cool, Freak.  Very happy for both of you.  It’s hard to beat times like that in the field.  People who don’t hunt have no idea what they’re missing.  Great pic too.  Well done boys.
